We are constantly reminded that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. This is a statement that needs to be eradicated from the human vocabulary. I mean, why should one be defined as a beautiful creature just because of how they look on the outside?
I believe true beauty lies from deep within then exhumes to the outside.
Clothes, jewellery, shoes, handbags makeup; these are some of the things that define beauty in an individual which is absurd at some point in time. Ladies are mostly labeled beautiful by what clothes they have on and what make up they wear.
We tend to forget that the hair of lady speaks for itself. It’ what makes one stand out, be it weaves, braids or natural hair.
Many Kenyan celebrities have proved that even when you wear your natural hair, you are as beautiful as any other lady in weaves, wigs or relaxed hair.
